lol yes. the "crying" for me is maybe just: "do qigong and don't worry about IMA and get some basic feeling and expression". that's hard enough already.

Was looking around the nett to see what I could find about my teachers I’ve had through my years, found my Aikido teachers website, although I did just study for a short time(2years) Mr,Stenudd was/is a great inspiration. His view on Qi/Ki - https://www.stenudd.com/aikido/ki-energy.htm

Interesting to see his webpage. Didn't know he had a background in fine arts.

I bought his so called “translation” ::) on the Daodejing ages ago. I wasn’t very impressed by his calligraphy back then. But I don’t think he follows the Chinese standard, but maybe of a more free way of a Japanese calligraphy. I was impressed by a few drawings, but I don’t think he has done enough painting, though he is not bad and I saw a couple of interesting pieces. He also has some interesting short experimental videos on his Youtube Channel.

yes you are probably right about a " free way of japanese calligraphy". Not that i have any special skill, i myself got the impression he calligraphy and possible 'fine' art autodidact, possible he learned some from his initial Aikido teacher....Anyway, im sure he's not calligraphing or paint for the cause to impress but just to express in his own personal way.....His Aikido and is top notch and likewise his writings i would say
